City Taskforce

Cities are important actors in achieving the targets of both the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The City Taskforce (CTY) co-creates solutions towards and promotes policies and strategies for low-carbon/carbon neutral, resilient and sustainable societies with stakeholders in Asian cities including those in Japan. In collaboration with other regional and international organisations and networks, CTY shares solutions and strategies with like-minded cities, and contributes to enhancing implementation capacity at the city level.
